Had a few meals here basically because we were too tired to go off property at the Marriott. First time was have dinner poolside after a some pool time. It is a bit of strange layout that requires you to go back towards the hotel to find the hostess when many of the guests arrive via the pool or beach.... More

I will admit, I was a little skeptical on the price of the breakfast buffet, but it ended up being so worth it!! They had an endless variety of excellent food, my husband and I were pretty much full for the rest of the day, so it ended up being a good deal we had more time to play on... More

We had the Sushi 2 nights and it was very good. We had a lot of tuna, Poke, and many others. All was good and tasty. We sat right at the bar so we could talk to the Chef, and he worked with me on my gluten free issues. Really empressed

We were quite disappointed with this restaurant. It was certainly not up to Marriott standards. The service was average and the food was so-so. I had the Shrimp Pad Thai, which was dry and lacked flavor. My wife had the grilled catch of the day, which she enjoyed and my daughter the fettuccine. We were hoping for much more and... More

If you are looking for food with "Hawaiian" flare, tastes, and ingredients in a setting that announces that you have made it to vacation paradise on earth, this is a restaurant you don’t want to miss. Is the food the best you will find at any restaurant on Kauai? The answer is that it is pretty close. Is the setting... More

Had been looking forward to the Friday night buffet but found it disappointing. Compared with most other places I visit for a buffet, the choices were limited and not very good. I settled for the salt-crusted prime rib which was juicy and flavoursome but there was a serious lack of complementary sides. I started with the beef, not having found... More

The restaurant is located pool side (check out the huge Marriott pool on their website) and has an excellent tropical setting with attentive and happy service. Basic breakfast from the menu can be expensive ($20 for two eggs, sausage and hash browns). There is also a... More
